Just ranting

It's the 4th quarter of Game 6 with about 4 1/2 minutes to go, and I can't bear to watch so I'm choosing to rant on my blog.

Silly Mavericks. I don't get it. These guys are PAID TO PUT A BALL IN A HOLE. Does it make sense to miss 7 attempts in a row? And does it make sense that if someone so much as burps near Wade they call foul? And does it make sense that at halftime they interviewed Heat players, showed Heat video montages, and gave no coverage to the Mavericks - the home team - whatsoever?

My favorite moment is when an offical calls "traveling". Ha. Everyone travels. I guess they throw that call in every once in a while to make it look like they still care about playing by the rules.

And I think it's ridiculous that game outcomes are so dependent upon fouls. That a player can simply draw fouls and that talent makes up for his sheer inability to put the ball in the hoop. And I love the theatrics of the fouled players. These guys (both teams) want to be treated like tough, brawny men, yet when it comes to fouls they're like little princesses.

The World Cup is actually more appealing to me right now. So simple, and much less negative.
